“We like the easy usability of the Peakboard Designer and that complex designs can still be created with LUA. The excellent support from Peakboard and the speed with which new functions are implemented is clearly worthy of mention.”
Marc-Philip Stüttern, Head of IT at Joh. Clouth GmbH & Co. KG

Challenge

Transparent informations
at a glance.

The goal at Joh. Clouth was to make general information and key figures available where they were needed. Ideally, it should be easy to enter the content – virtually in passing – on a digital “bulletin board”. Because one thing is certain: Prompt and open internal communication increases productivity and thus contributes to the success of the company.

Solution

Exciting times.

During his research Marc-Phillip Stüttem, Head of IT at Joh. Clouth GmbH & Co. KG came across the all-in-one solution Peakboard, which consists of software and hardware. After an initial successful test of the software, a trial version was requested so that the screens created could be tested directly in the individual departments.

“From the beginning we were impressed by the easy handling of the Peakboard Designer and that complex designs can still be created with LUA,” reports Mr. Stüttem.

The first designs and screens were created quickly:

“We first tried out different layouts and saw what the Peakboard Designer was capable of. After about a day, we had the first screen ready for use according to our wishes. The fast response time and implementation of new functions by Peakboard’s support were also excellent,” explains Mr. Stüttem.

“For me, digitization also means generating real added value from existing data.

“We were able to set up the dashboard so that we could self-manage it: We downloaded the Peakboard Designer, chose the components to be displayed, and then configured and set up the Peakboard Box. This was a simple task due to our knowledge of automation structures. There was also a lot of learning by doing, which was fun. We were able to put the first implementations into live operation after just a week.”

„We needed a centralized display of current production data on an andon-board to take the next big step toward operational excellence. Employees should be able to see the status of their plant in real time: What is running on my machine right here, right now? The solution selected also had to be able to become the standard in our group to avoid having to work with a large number of different systems.“
